BOTOX & Injectable Wrinkle Treatments

Fine lines and wrinkles are a natural side-effect of aging, but thanks to recent developments in the art and science of injectable wrinkle treatments, you can turn back time and enjoy firm, wrinkle-free skin on your face and neck.

How Injectable Wrinkle Treatment Works

Injectable wrinkle treatment works in different ways, depending on the area being treated and the product being used. Here at Southern Vein & Laser Center, all of the wrinkle treatments we use are non-surgical and FDA approved.

Crow’s feet and light surface wrinkles are often treated with BOTOX, a highly refined muscle-relaxing agent. When injected into specific areas on the face and neck, BOTOX blocks the fine-twitch action of nerves and muscles which are causing fine lines and wrinkles to appear.

Deeper wrinkles around the cheek, nose and mouth can be smoothed out using JUVEDERM Voluma, a fast-acting injectable gel that plumps up the cells just beneath the skin, helping to minimize the appearance of folds and facial wrinkles. Kybella helps to improve your chin profile through injections into the fat under your chin.

What to Expect

During treatment, a very fine sterile syringe will be used to inject the solution into the treatment area. Depending on the size of the area being treated, this can take anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes per session.

What to Expect
Patients report experiencing minimal discomfort during the injections, and a topical numbing solution can be applied to reduce any uncomfortable sensations that may occur. Temporary side effects may include mild bruising or redness at the injection site – these symptoms usually clear up within a few days.

The effects of wrinkle treatment with BOTOX can take up to 4 weeks to develop, and can last between 3 and 6 months. The final results from JUVEDERM injections are also gradual, and can last for 4-6 months depending on the location of the wrinkles, and the condition of your skin.
